Marking the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War, this display examines the role of the British Army during the first and only United Nations (UN) war to date.
Using personal objects, archives, and media sources, 'Korea 1950–53: The Cold War's Hot War' explores the personal experience of the soldiers involved and the far-reaching legacy of the conflict.
The display touches on key issues relating to the conflict, including the challenging terrain and changeable climate in which the troops were fighting and the limited resources available in the wake of the Second World War.
